Wow. Interference and DP. That really bailed out JV.

The lower Reddick's OBP gets, the less it goes down each appearance he doesn't get on base

Strike 1 to Bregs was on the line for the LH batters box. He gets that strike called a bunch and I have no clue why.

No runs scored, but that half inning was a huge 'W' for the Astros and a good look at what pro ball players can do.

The pitcher has 2 outs and gets Altuve 0-2. He knows Altuve is a free swinger and he basically needs one pitch to get out of the inning, rest his arm, and keep his team close.

Altuve knows that Verlander is grinding and could use another minute or two chilling. So he turns the 2-pitch at-bat into an 8-pitch at-bat and eventually draws a damn walk from the guy to get him over 80 pitches. Brantley follows that up with the HBP, which he probably would have rather avoided, but now their pitcher is sweating and ours has a few more minutes to get himself reset for the next inning.

Bregman just misses putting the game out of reach, but the Astros piled up 15 more pitches on the pitch count for their starter when he was 1 pitch away from his quickest innng of the day.

looks like Devo will be first out of the pen. Then perhaps Biagini

And another strike that gets called a ball for JV. It had so much break it fooled the ump I think.

Absolutely. Completely changed the inning.

If Cliff Gustafon was coaching the Astros today, he'd let Verlander go the distance and have 19 strikeouts on 193 pitches thrown.

Is there anyone here who would not have preferred JV to have just given up a couple of his traditional solo shots?
W

hopefully that's it for Asher today

Shouldn't that be it for their starter? 100+ pitches.

Losing today after last night would be highly disappointing

I know devo has been better recently...

But I still don't think he's very good.

Wouldn't trust him at all on playoff roster but that's just me
